That will work too, you can just cut off that plastic pipe that extends from the stock plate. Another issue that you might have with the stock plate is securing the stock vacuum plumbing to the plate so it doesn't pop under boost

For my setup I made a 180 degree fitting for the oil separator outlet so that I won't have to go around the engine to the oil separator on the front. Instead the hose will come out at the front of the engine and hopefully the 180 fitting will trap some oil as well.
